Archive or Purge schedule start time is incorrect



Archive or Purge wizard has been scheduled to run everyday at 12:00 AM, but, system archived at 1200 only on first day.

Subsequent runs started at very different times.

Observed pattern and found that next run is 12:00AM + time lasted in seconds, that is, if first run started at 1200 AM and it took 15000 seconds then second run will be at 1200 AM + 15000 seconds (250 minutes, 4hrs and 10 minutes) = 0410 AM
